A touch of luxury in Tuscany
Nowadays, more and more people search for tranquility and relaxation during their holidays. They prefer to stay away from mass tourism, in cities flocked with tourists such as Rome, Venice and Florence.
Luxury travel destinations have gradually attracted more and more visitors, who are looking for tranquility, high class service and exclusivity. The breath-taking landscapes of Tuscany, with its rolling hills covered in vineyards and the fertile valley where all sorts of fruits and vegetables are produced, have made Tuscany a favored destination for the last centuries. Visitors from all over the world come to this region, where some of the most important art and culture hails from.
Centrally located within Tuscany is the golf resort and village of Castelfalfi, just a few hours’ drive away from Pisa, Florence and Siena. One will find a world-class, newly renovated yet authentic village, which offers a combination of leisure, culinary and golf facilities. Beside the two main hotels in the area, the area also offers holiday homes which are both available for purchase and rental. This real estate village is currently inhabited by upper-class clientele, who seek to be part of ‘La Dolce Vita’ that Tuscany offers. All holiday homes have an authentic exterior, but are equipped with a state of the art interior.
Several of these properties are already owned by Austrians, Germans or British, who spend their holidays in the tranquility of their Tuscan home. The housing covers only 0,03 of the estate, which means that there are woodlands, hills and several golf courses in the area, for recreational activities. Castelfalfi covers more than ten square kilometres of land, and used to be an old abandoned town. After a major exodus of young Italians in the 1960’s, the town went into a slumber, but recently awoke after the Castelfalfi project started.
The conversion of the old outdoor swimming pool is to be completed in 2013 and a fine restaurant with Tuscan cuisine, a bar, and three luxurious apartments are already avalaible in the Castello. The Castello is the centre of the Castelfalfi resort, and is basically the town’s old castle. The 27-hole golf course in the Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is now one of the best golf courses in Italy.
The woods surrounding the manor provide the opportunity to explore the local surroundings and the unspoiled nature. The resort’s water is extracted from the existing wells and the water is clarified so that it can be used more than once. Every owner of a villa in Tuscany will find a wonderful natural environment providing tranquility and excellent food of the region. Visitors of Tuscany will be able to enjoy their vacation in Castelfalfi to the fullest.
